I am thrilled to have read this!! What a fantastic adventure. My family, Hughes (Fork Union)and Coopers (Columbia) and Johnsons, grew up in Fluvanna. I spent many summers with my Hughes Grandparents in Fork Union; and lived with them for one year and attended the Dunbar School for one year. I have fond recollections of Horace III's Dad at the Thessalonia Baptist Church. My family moved to New York City where I spent most of childhood and teenage years. I now live in Washington DC and would love to meet Hannah at the Museum sometime. I cannot wait to vicariously explore the river with you. I can be reached at email@example.com. Regards, Trish Cooper
This is a fascinating and important story! Can’t wait to read and hear more about all of it! Thank you!
This is the story of many African Americans. Discovering the hidden history of our families which has been omitted from this country’s narrative. Too many people in the history our nation have taken credit for our accomplishments.
